Two Internal Boot Drives on Windows XP. Any easy to select which one to boot from before restart?

I have 2 internal stata drives in a Windows XP box. How do I select which to boot from? I have tried changing the boot drive order at startup time in the bios, but it ignores that setting and always boots to the same drive. If I remove power from that drive, it will then boot from the alternate drive. Is there an easy way to do this with existing drives?
